'Blood donors are needed urgently to save lives Emergency Blood Transfusion Service', 1942
Lithograph information poster, after Abram Games (1914-1996), published by the Ministry of Health, printed by Low and Brydone Limited, London, 1942.
This dramatic poster appeals for blood donors. Games' design includes a red tube protuding from the text in the centre and also from the head of the soldier so that it appears as if he is receiving an emergency blood transfusion.
From a collection of 45 posters from World War Two (1939-1945).
